You know what this weekend taught us? That there are no more sacred cows left in the horror genre. When the powers-that-be in Hollywood get it in their heads that they want to remake something, for better or for worse, there’s nothing that’s going to stop them. Even lesser hits look like they’re next up for the ever homogenizing remake machine. We know. You’re totally excited.
According to our Aussie brothers over at MovieHole.net, Warner Bros. is developing a 3D remake of Wes Craven’s 1986 chiller Deadly Friend. Yes, that Deadly Friend — the one with the old Throw Mama from the Train lady getting her head exploded by a basketball.
“‘Deadly Friend’ is in the works – writers are toying with the concept now, producers are racking their brains trying to think who’d be an ideal proxy for Kristy Swanson (Hmmm… pretty robot girl… Kristen Stewart!?) and Warner Bros are likely hoping their ‘Re-Animator’-esque horror redo lends itself to a shitty 3D overlay.”
We just cannot wait. Check out the trailer for the original below.
